Ok, just as I wished for.

I was just not sure whether FreeBSD had any issues with this
particular machine's controller or not.
The controller (Smart Array 642) seems to be supported according
to the ciss man-page.

Do you have this controller or the new 6-port SATA controller
(chipset unspecified) that comes with this machine?

No problem, I think I'd do that via iLO or something like that.
